Passing the Gloucester Chain of Office

On Sunday afternoon a bit of history was made when the green and gold mayoral chain of office for the former City of Gloucester was passed from the last Gloucester mayor, Claudette Cain, to Ottawa mayor Jim Watson.
The ceremonial chain, which had been in the custody of the Gloucester Historical Society, joins those of the other municipalities amalgamated with Ottawa in the care of the Ottawa City Archives. City Archivist Paul Henry was present to take custody at the conclusion of the ceremony.
